Diden Altintas, 32, Turkish, is a site manager at the Tunnel 8 construction site. She is a mining engineer by profession. Despite her limited working experience, her competence and English language skills led Yapi Merkezi to entrust her with an important task. It is her first time outside Turkey. The work is tiring because the working day is 12 hours long. She works for 10 days, then she has 4 days off. She walks up to 25,000 steps a day. She is the only woman on the construction site in Vinjan.
